Description

Education is seen as central to economic competitiveness, the reduction of poverty and inequality, and environmental sustainability. This book is an invaluable collection of key readings, with particular reference to globalization, for anyone concerned with the study of education at a time of major economic and social change.

  • This authoritative selection of writings defines the field of sociology, political economy, and cultural studies of education in one comprehensive volume. It provides lecturers with the key papers and enables them to give students a single point of reference for their course.
  • The general introduction, which sets out the major issues in the field, and part openers, which introduce each thematic section, provide a framework to help readers gain the greatest value from the articles.
  • An entirely new selection of over seventy papers written by leading researchers worldwide (including many specially commissioned pieces) covers key areas such as globalization, sociological theories of learning, higher education, gender, and race, to present readers with a definitive guide to the state of contemporary thinking in the field.
